L'oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

Now I'm not the most frugal person when it comes to make up. I remember when I was about 14/15 years old, Versace used to have a makeup line. I used to save up the money I earned sweeping the floor in the local bakers (FYI this was the year 2000, not 1952) and buy these Versace lip glosses from Allders in Croydon, they were my pride and joy. Sadly both Allders and my beloved Versace lip glosses no longer exist, but my expensive taste in beauty products has remained.

Now, as much as I love my expensive makeup and beauty items, I do love finding cheaper high quality alternatives and the L'oreal Micellar Solution is my latest discovery.

Micella waters are makeup removers, which look and feel just like water. They are so gentle on your skin and you don't need to wash your face after using them. Just pour some on a cotton pad, and your good to go. They are so quick and easy and so much better for your skin than wipes, which strip your skin and leave your face looking red and blotchy after use. Bioderma is the most famous of the micellar waters and since discovering this last year I have not used makeup wipes at all.

As much as I love Bioderma its hard to get hold of in the UK as the brand is French. You can only buy online and it costs around £15.00 for a 500ml bottle. L'oreal's Micellar Solution is widely available and only costs £4.99 for 200ml. I cant tell any difference between the two, they both remove my face makeup easily and are very gentle on my skin. I will definitely be purchasing L'oreal's verson from now on.


  1. I remember those Versace lip glosses with gold cap! They ised to come in very shimmery shades.
    I have micellar water from Vichy and it seems to be quite good too. I get other companies will start making them too, just like they did with BB cream

  2. Ahh I'm glad you remember them too! And they had the gold logo on the lid, very fancy ;) ooh I didn't know Vichy did one, I'll definitely keep an eye out for it in Boots!
